Vert monument

According to Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, in a text that Marie Voignier sent us while preparing this exhibition: "the Other of the Others is always other". The Brazilian anthropologist’s thought on equivocation contradicts the popular saying: "friends of my friends are my friends"; the anthropological knowledge process is not a logical translation of one system into another but a possibility to position oneself "in between", an attempt to "exist among". The Other of 'our' Others is not us; there's no equivalence implied. Failure of the rationalist thought, anguish in the face of a world whose immensity and complexity become bigger and bigger to us in the light of the ever more rapid spread of information about it. Preserving equivocation at the heart of this thought on complexity means allowing the Other to retain its status, its point of view on the world.
